    Is it coming from the front suspension? I had a clunk in the front when i went over small bumps that was taken away with the addition of Perrin endlinks.

    yeah it's comming from there. I think i'm gonna have to get the endlinks or just pull in to the shop and have them check the tire rods, suspention

    my noise is coming straight from the steering wheel. i dont think it is from the front end of the car. if the noise increases i will bring it to subaru.

    On my '04, the plastic casing right behind the steering wheel - especially on top - would make strange noises and clack around. It sounded like it was coming from the wheel, too. Try tightening any fasteners or bolts back there.

    Just a thought.
